The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson

Posted: June 11, 2017 in Fiction, Horror, Non fiction, Suspense, Uncategorized

I wanted to get scared, after ‘the exorcist’ and ‘Dracula’ I didn’t come across any book that scared the hell out of me. I want horror books to haunt me, I love watching horror movies and reading about real life incidents. Don’t get me wrong, I am not the bravest person, actually no where near brave 🙂 I am just fascinated by the idea of all these. I can get scared in plain day light 😉 🙂

So  I picked this book which was in horror category. It says real life story so I had to read this. I did a quick research about  Ronnie DeFeo, 23, was convicted of shooting his parents, brothers, and sisters. George and Kathleen Lutz thought it was ideal place to move into with their 3 kids after buying this place complete with finished basement, swimming pool, and boathouse. Twenty-eight days later, they fled in terror, leaving most of their belongings behind.

It was a good read, but bit slow. By coincidence  I started waking up in between 3 AM to 4 AM after reading this book. I really got scared to even go to washroom, cause in the book, at the same time scary stuff happened to the people who were at that house. I used to wake my husband and ask him to stay awake until I return from wash room 🙂

I read in internet somewhere that George Lutz was into black magic. I think that is why he chose that place believing that Ronnie DeFeo killed his family under the influence of devil and he might be able to practice his black magic in that house. But something went terribly wrong and his magic backfired on him. I read that one of his kids accused him of practicing Satanism and magic even before they moved to into the quiet suburban neighborhood on the south shore of Long Island, New York. He recalled the family’s bookshelves lined with books on the occult and demonism. Anyways we don’t know what really happened. But this story is interesting if you are a horror lover. My ratings: 3 out of 5. A one time read which I can’t forget easily.
